Thanks to everyone who nominated!
The Westpac Manawatu Business Awards recognise and celebrate the success of the smartest, savviest and strongest businesses, small and large, in Manawatu region who are operating at the leading edge of best practice.
We are delighted to announce that we have had another successful year of nominations, with a total of 115 unique nominations for the 2018 Westpac Manawatu Business Awards. We wish all the best to the nominees as preliminary judging has now commenced.
The 2018 finalists will be announced at the Finalist Announcement Function at Hotel Coachman on Thursday 27 September.
"Participating in the Westpac Business Awards was a fantastic experience. As a health provider and a not-for-profit organisation we are audited on a number of levels but the WBA judging experience took us to another level and enabled the team to articulate the business processes that sit behind everything that we do. From a community support perspective, it was very useful to be able to show that our business processes stood up to scrutiny and winning both the NFP and the medium business category cemented that. Our focus on continuous quality improvement was enhanced by the business judging process and we certainly recommend the experience to other businesses."
